Melanin Originals LLC Re-Launches New Cartoon Series
Melanin Originals LLC is a children’s book company which pens biographies of African American pioneers and those who played an important role in African American history. The company will provide a full screening of their latest animation project at the Global Impact Film Festival on Saturday, August 26th, 2017.
Having received an outpouring of support from both parents and educators for their publications, the company’s founders felt that it was time to introduce a new project; Cool Genes®.
Cool Genes®, a cartoon series, sends a message that every child is blessed from the womb with a unique ability to achieve his/her own kind of greatness and success. Cartoon cameos are made by historical figures such as Booker T. Washington and Ida B. Wells.
The Cool Genes® series originally got its start on YouTube, and eventually went on to be showcased at local film festivals such as the Fort Worth Indie Film Showcase. The cartoon also won 2nd place at the Dallas Black Film Festival.
